AllMusic Review by

12 Hits: Five Star Collection is a budget-priced, single-disc overview of the king of country novelty records, Ray Stevens. His biggest early hits -- "Ahab the Arab," "Gitarzan," and "The Streak" -- are included along with his straight country chart hits, "Misty," "Turn Your Radio On," and his 1971 international chart-topper "Everything Is Beautiful." The combination of silly and sedate material provides a rare glimpse of Stevens' full range as a songwriter and vocalist.
